Be a big boy and carry your license. That is the problem today, we are lazy. Let technology do it.
I dont regulate Title 14, but ANY time our regs call for documentation to be produced on request and you aint got it, I will give you some so you dont feel left out until you get it taken care of. Yes I can research licenses for blasters with a phone or radio call. What does the LAW say? Really no excuse other than you are lazy.

Yes, I realize it is the "LAW" and that's why I don't fish if I forget my license. The question is whether this law makes sense in 2018, and I say no. It seems to me that a minimal use of technology---nothing fancy or cutting edge required---would make it easier for everyone, including the warden, and more secure to boot.
It's all in the mind...

With modern technology, LE doesn't even need to interact with you.  They could just take a picture of your face, run it through facial recognition, and immediately know if you have a license or not.  Big brother is watching ... be careful what you wish for.

Polepole obviously hasn’t worked with the CDFW IT department.  They make our AOTY site seem highly reliable by comparison. :smt044  :smt002

They still use carrier pigeons to send messages. Modernizing would be lazy.

I'd be surprised if CDFW even has an IT department. :smt044

They’re trying. I think the ALDS system is an improvement.

3. Go fishing.

Maybe if you only get the basic license. I need a book bag to carry mine around! :smt044

...my Co2 on this thread

While fishing off Leffingwell Landing a summer or so ago(?), a fishing buddy and I were visited by the DF&G mid-day, while off shore on our kayaks.
"Garabaldi" and I had our limits of rockies and were angling for a ling or a cabby when the officers pulled up between us. I had realized earlier that I had left my license dangling from my rear view mirror inside my truck, so when I was asked to present, I made my confession. "Sorry, I left my license in the truck". The officer checked that we were compliant within limits, had our approved landing nets visible, and looked as "if" we were properly attired with PFD's etc. which we were. The officer asked for my name, birthdate, and home address, then asked "where(?)" did I purchase my California fishing license. After writing all this down, he said he would check when he returned to base, and "if" I checked out I would not hear from him or be cited. I asked "IF" I could see is badge number (and this officer complied) so, I had some important details on my side. 

Never heard from CF&D.

Take this with a grain of salt "if" you wish, but I think it's up to the call of the individual officer, and I musta bumped into a fair one, 'nuff said.

This
Or, buy a separate wallet just for your licences and throw it in whatever tackle box or waders or whatever you might be using that day. I have never forgotten it.

What does CHP do when you do not have license, registration, or insurance? You get a ticket even if you have all the above, but not in the vehicle.
The exact same thing here. It is the law. Take your license or take a ticket if you get caught. You are an adult, mommy not putting your license in your lunch for you to go fishing is not an excuse. Take responsibility for yourselves for crying out loud.
Live your life, the way you want to be remembered. Don't have any regrets, we only get this one dance to make it count. Start at your eulogy, and work backwards.

You keep on proving Jerry's point for him.  Unintentionally. 

I think that's kinda awesome.

I've never had a California fishing license, so I don't know what information you need to present to get a license, but up here in Oregon we have to give ODFW our SSN.  I think I prefer that kind of personal information be securely locked up and not accessible to anyone through the WWW.  Just sayin'.

Same info as CA ID such as a drivers license ; no SSN
